UFC Heavyweight Title Curse Strikes Sixth Victim in Three Years; Dos Santos Sidelined With Torn Meniscus
Considering that every one of the six men who has worn it since this day three years ago has fallen to illness or injury, the UFC heavyweight belt could soon become the least desired trophy in sports.
The latest victim of the ill-fated gilded strap is Junior dos Santos, who went into his UFC on Fox heavyweight title bout with Cain Velasquez with a torn meniscus which will probably require surgery and an extended recovery time, making his first title defense unlikely until the second half of 2012. Somebody needs to bring the belt to a priest and have him perform an exorcism on it. Otherwise, we may only see one heavyweight title bout per year.
Check out the breakdown of the unlucky timeline of the cursed hunk of leather and gold after the jump.Read More ADD COMMENTS (304) DIGG THIS
